Nancy Princenthal, author of the first full full-length biography on Agnes Martin, brings us behind the life and art of one of the most original and influential painters of the postwar period.
Over the course of a career that spanned fifty years, Agnes Martin’s austere, serene work anticipated and helped to define Minimalism, even as she battled psychological crises and carved out a solitary existence in the American Southwest. Martin identified with the Abstract Expressionists but her commitment to linear geometry caused her to be associated in turn with Minimalist, feminist and even outsider artists. She moved through some of the liveliest art communities of her time while maintaining a legendary reserve. Martin’s work will fill the Guggenheim Rotunda in the first comprehensive survey of her work since her death from Oct 7, 2016-Jan 11, 2017.Buy tickets/get more info now
